Holy Gardener, We have been tending seeds for a while now. Mid-summer is the time to watch and wait, to water and weed. Might there be some small harvest as a result of our labors? If it is possible, in all our endeavors, grant us the encouragement of fresh tomatoes, the surprise of an early pear, the abundance of summer squash. Amen.
